For the majority of homes in the UK, connection to a gas supply and central heating is something that is taken for granted. However, there are over 4 million people across Britain that do not have access to the gas grid and many more that rely upon temporary dwellings such as caravans and holiday homes on occasions during the year.
So, without gas how do you set about heating your property? One option is to hire, or buy gas fires; however, these are expensive, bulky and require you to have a gas bottle inside your home – something that many people are not comfortable with. Another downside to this solution is their inability to deliver a traditional radiator experience. A much better alternative is to invest in electric heating and there several reasons why.
Electric heating is the most efficient type of home heating on the market – offering 100% efficiency, with every penny spent being converted into heat.
It is also fully controllable. Electric radiators come fitted with thermostatic controls allowing each heater to be adjusted according to specific temperature requirements. Radiators fitted with advanced TDI controls provide the additional benefit letting users place heaters on a timer, switching on an off around your needs.
Space Saving Heating
One of the greatest benefits of EHS products, whether it’s an electric heating boiler or vertical radiators, is their space saving capabilities. Boilers such as the Slim Jim are designed to provide a heating solution where space is at a premium, while radiators come in a range of sizes and configurations, with wall mounted and freestanding options ensuring better management of space.
Apart from the aforementioned benefits, what makes electric heating so appealing is its simplicity. Installation of electric radiators is as easy as pushing a plug into a wall socket and boilers possess no flue or cylinder, making fitting fast and straightforward.
All products are maintenance free – no pipework, no bleeding and no annual gas safety checks – just safe, clean heating. Because of these benefits, an electric heating system will last 50% longer than a gas system.
In the past living in an area without a gas supply was regarded as a disadvantage; however, thanks to electric heating it can now be seen as a benefit.
